    Might shift it back about another half inch but up down ways she's good to go.

    Edit: I did shift it back but more like a whole inch. Snorkle tubes and some other details up front yet.

    That's the target date. I have lots to do yet. Should make it though. Don't know about the other two that are aiming for that date though. Maybe they will chime in.

    Re: Caddy spy shot

    Finish mounting engine
    Rebuild engine
    cage
    seats
    shocks
    trans
    xfer
    drive shafts(got a freebie coming from HAD)
    most of the electrical
    spare tire mount
    air tank for OBA
    OBW
    Armor
    winch
    brake lines
    fuel lines
    radiator and elec fans and plumbing it from one end to the other.
    then the whole slew of little things that ties it all together.
    Maybe not that much but that list sure looks shorter than I think it should

    Re: Caddy spy shot

    Mine is almost contactin the fire wall on the driverside corner. Did yours fit tight there. I already trimmed a corner of the bracketry that holds the brake booster and such to the fire wall. The lip that sticks out on the fire wall has been hammered back but there's plenty of room there yet. Just close by the head in that one corner. Otherwise I could shove it back at least 1.5" yet.

    Nope, not cold but if it wasn't under the truck it'd be totally buried in one of the other various storage locations. Just thinking ahead.

    Definitely, if you get some stuff lined up to do I could buzz over there some weekend to do some wrenching as well. Make it a wrenching party. You buy the beer! Hell will just crank it up and keep going until the beer is gone or we pass out.
